I have a moderate-size walk-in pantry in the corner of my kitchen. It was not spectacularly untidy but I did need to clean the shelves, check for any ‘orphans’ lurking in the back corners and generally get things sorted. I do not have a before photo but here it is when I had finished.
I only store the things that I am currently using in here as I have bulk stores in 10 litre buckets downstairs as well as another stock cupboard in the kitchen where I keep quantities of tinned food and extra packets of pasta, dry crackers etc.
The container in the middle of the bottom shelf is a few things I found that were not likely to get used so I have put them all together and made a note to myself to use them up. One thing in this bundle was some rice noodles which have been used the the stir-fry for dinner.
Today I did some more sewing for my grand-daughters. Here are the results of my efforts over the past week or so. I still have more that I am working on and will add the photos when they are done.
This the pinafore made from the sea-green corduroy I mentioned in yesterday’s post. I have yet to do the hem. The photograph does not do the colour justice and it is difficult to see the little embroidered flowers also.
While I had the pattern out I decided to make a summer one as well. It can be worn with a blouse or t-shirt underneath or alone in really hot weather. The fabric I used was originally a caftan I made for my sister many years ago. The only variation I needed to make was contrast fabric for the pockets and facings as well as a join in the centre front of the front and back bodice pieces.
This is the pattern I used – originally bought in 1986 and still going strong.
That is it for today. I am still working on a dressing gown for Miss O as well as a hooded polar fleece jacket. I bought material today to make some more winter nighties for her and I have material here to make singlets and skivvies for both of the girls.
I managed 7,500 steps today which is not too bad since I did not go walking as such. That was just incidental at home and also at the market and Spotlight.
